Hand Built Porcelain Vessels

Isla Keiller creates stunning hand-built vessels using porcelain, resin and metal powder.

Isla Keiller is an artist who is a part of our not-for-profit Emerging Artists Series which supports the work of new, rising artists and graduates coming through different universities, colleges and art schools across Britain.

A recent Jewellery & Metal Design graduate from Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Isla hand builds stunning large porcelain vessel that are decorated with resin and metal powder. She states that her inspiration for her pieces stem from natural form. Isla has always enjoyed walking and uses the beautiful shapes and patterns seen through tree lines and landscapes as her inspiration.

Isla states being raised in a rural area and being always encouraged to be outside, playing and making things has formed her passion for creating and making. Her mother is a fine artist and has always encouraged her to create and be inspired by natural objects. She cites that her favourite part of the making process is the mid-way point, when a piece starts to form and you can see how your design is emerging.

Isla's pieces have such a beautiful, organic, fluid and flowing shape. Their curving shape and tall height give them such a soothing presence. We love the matt finish on the vessels created by Isla's use of metal powders. They are pieces that will stand the test of time and will never go out of fashion.

We are honoured to feature Isla and her work as a part of our not-for-profit Emerging Artists Series. We want to help new, rising artists and makers and by giving them a place to display their exquisite pieces and support the new talent in British craftsmanship.
